5 Foot Masks and Peels Your Feet Need This WinterDecember 31, 2020
You may be hiding your feet beneath socks and snow boots in the winter, but they can still be prone to dry, cracked and callused skin. Applying body lotion regularly can help, but for a truly pampering foot-care experience, try a foot mask.
Foot masks are typically shaped like a sock and are infused with moisturizing and exfoliating ingredients to make your skin feel nourished and baby-soft. Here, we’re rounding up five of our favorite rejuvenating foot masks to use in the winter.
This 60- to 90-minute treatment uses a blend of exfoliating AHAs and BHAs, plus botanical extracts to soften, speed up cell turnover and rejuvenate the skin on the feet. It can take several days to start experiencing results, but once you do, your smooth feet will be doing a happy dance.
Just like the skin on your face, you can’t achieve maximum softness without exfoliating first. The Baby Foot Peel is an hour-long treatment formulated with 16 natural extracts to chemically exfoliate and moisturize, removing dead skin to reveal a new layer underneath. Because the peeling can last for a few days, the winter is the perfect time to use the mask.
These gold foil booties contain two layers — one soaked in Bulgarian rose and shea butter, and a second with an intense warming effect that boosts absorption. In just 15 minutes, the formula helps revitalize, smooth and nourish skin.
Formulated with glycolic and lactic acids to chemically exfoliate, this mask works to remove dead surface skin cells from your feet, while hydrating with coconut and jojoba oils and shea butter. The oil-based serum works in just 20 minutes, but you can also leave the mask on overnight for a deeper treatment (just apply regular socks over the paper mask booties to keep them in place).
This K-beauty pick is infused with 33 botanical essences meant to target calluses and dry skin. Wear the mask for 90 minutes for best results.
